  1. How We Collect and Use (Process) Your Personal Information

Orbian collects personal information about its customers. With a few exceptions, this information is limited to the kinds of information that can be found on a business card: first name, last name, job title, employer name, work address, work email, and work phone number. We use this information to provide customers with financial services and only those services for which our customers directly contract with us. We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of Orbian services for the same purposes.

2.1. Personal Information You Give to Us Directly:

  • Customer

When you become an Orbian customer, we collect information about you including (but not limited to) your name, your employer’s name, your work address (including your country location), and your email address. We may also collect your personal email address, a personal mailing address, and a mobile phone number, although this is not typical.

We process your personal information for contract and payments administration, to deliver customer benefits to you, and to inform you of Orbian-related events, content and other benefits or opportunities associated with your Orbian account. Orbian may also use this information to help us understand our customers’ interests and requirements to better tailor our products and services to meet your needs.

  •  Live Events and Web Conferences

Orbian hosts events throughout the year. These include in-person conferences as well as live web conferences (collectively, “Events”). If you register for one of our Events and you are a customer, we will access the information in your customer account to provide you with information and services associated with the Event. If you are not a customer and you register for one of our Events, we will collect your name and contact information, which we will store in our database(s) and use to provide you with information and services associated with the Event.

We keep a record of your participation in Orbian Events as an attendee. This information may be used to tell you about other Events and publications. It may also be used to help us understand our customers’ interests and requirements to better tailor our products and services to meet your needs.

Some of our Events in the future may be sponsored. In this case, Orbian will provide an attendee list to sponsors, co-sponsors, and exhibitors of our Events. Orbian may also allow sponsors, co-sponsors and/or exhibitors to send you material by mail once per sponsored Event, in which case Orbian will engage a third-party mailing service and will not share your mailing address directly with the sponsor/exhibitor. If you do not wish to have your information included in an attendee list or to receive information from sponsors, co-sponsors and/or exhibitors, you can express your preferences when you register for Events or you may contact Orbian directly at [email protected].

  •  Publications

Orbian offers supply chain finance (“SCF”) related content for our customers. In addition to producing original content, Orbian also subscribes to news feeds and blogs produced by others which we may link to from an Orbian Website. This means you may find yourself on an Orbian Website or reading an email from the Orbian publications team and we will offer you a link to another organization’s website where you will find content on supply chain finance that we find relevant and useful to you. At these times, you will be leaving an Orbian Website. Orbian is not responsible or liable for content provided by these third-party websites or personal information they may gather from you.

You may wish to subscribe to Orbian’s publications without becoming a customer of Orbian. To receive Orbian news by email, you will need to create a “profile” with us which involves providing Orbian with at least your first name and last name, an email address, and the country in which you live. Orbian does not share this information with any third party other than to store the information in our cloud-hosted databases.

You may manage your Orbian subscriptions by subscribing or unsubscribing at any time. Please note that if you have set your browser to block cookies, this may have an impact on your ability to unsubscribe. If you have any difficulties managing your subscription or other communication preferences with Orbian, please contact us at [email protected].

Orbian uses Google Analytics to track how often people gain access to or read our content. We use this information in the aggregate to understand what content our customers find useful or interesting so we can produce the most valuable content to meet your needs.

  •  Surveys

We also conduct surveys that we use to produce original research on supply chain finance. We do not track individuals but look at information in the aggregate only. Participation in surveys is voluntary.

  •   Training

If you participate in an Orbian training, information session, Webex or the like, you may sign up directly in which case we collect your name and contact information directly from you. You may, alternatively, sign up for training – or be signed up for training – by or through a third party such as your own employer. Your personal information will be stored in our database (hosted by our cloud service provider) and may also be shared with our trainers. Orbian’s trainers have agreed not to share your information with others and not to use your personal information other than to provide you with Orbian products and services.

  •  Your Correspondence with Orbian

If you correspond with us by email, the postal service, or another form of communication, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained in it and use it to respond to your inquiry, to notify you of conferences, publications, or other services, or to keep a record of your complaint, accommodation request, and the like. If you wish to have Orbian “erase” your personal information or otherwise refrain from communicating with you, please contact us at [email protected].

Note: if you ask Orbian not to contact you by email at a certain email address, Orbian will retain a copy of that email address on its master “do not contact” list in order to comply with your no-contact request.

2.2. Personal Information Collected Automatically

  •  Automatic Collection of Personal Information

We may collect certain information automatically when you use our services, such as your approximate geographic location (city and country) derived from your IP address, language, and browser and device information. We may also automatically collect information regarding your use of our services, such as pages that you’ve visited before, during and after using our services, information about the links you click, the types of content you interact with, the frequency and duration of your activities, and other information about how you use our services.

  •  Cookie Policy

  •  Operationally Necessary

This includes Technologies that allow you access to our services, applications, and tools that are required to identify irregular website behavior, prevent fraudulent activity, improve security, or allow you to make use of our website functionality.

  •  Performance-Related

We may use Technologies, including Google Analytics, to assess the performance of our services including as part of our analytic practices to help us understand how individuals use our services.

  •  Social Media Platforms

Our services may contain social media buttons which might include widgets such as the “share this” button or other links to third party websites such as LinkedIn. These features may collect personal information such as your IP address and which page you are visiting on our websites and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interactions with these platforms are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

2.3. Purposes for Processing Your Data

As explained above, Orbian processes your data to provide you with the products or services you have requested and for which you have contracted with us. We use this information to refine our products and services to better tailor them to your needs and to communicate with you about other services Orbian offers that may assist you in your career or otherwise help you do your job relative to your company’s supply chain finance program or participation as a vendor therein.

2.4. Personal Information We Get from Third Parties

From time to time, Orbian receives personal information about individuals from third parties. This may happen if your employer is a corporate customer of Orbian and signs you up as an account manager for training.

2.5. What Happens If You Don’t Give Us Your Data

You can enjoy much of Orbian’s web content without giving us your personal data. Much of the information on the Orbian Websites is available even to those who are not customers. You can even enter only the minimal amount of information (name and contact information) to access information. Some personal information is necessary so that Orbian can supply you with the services you requested and contracted, and to authenticate you so that we know it is you and not someone else. You may manage your account subscriptions and opt-out of receiving marketing communication at any time.

We use this information to help us design our sites to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use this information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences. The Orbian Websites also use session cookies, and persistent cookies related to analytics.

4.4. Do Not Track and Browser Controls

Orbian does not track its customers when they cross to third party websites and does not provide targeted advertising, and therefore our websites do not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

However, most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set.

  1. Transferring Personal Data from the European Union to the United States

Orbian has its headquarters in the United States. Information we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Orbian relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, Orbian collects and transfers personal data to the United States only: with your consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Orbian in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Orbian endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with Orbian and the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Orbian also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you.
